As a 53-year-old aging ex-athlete with a number of physical limitations, I was failing in the weight and fitness aspects of my life. Yo-yoing in size my entire life, at my largest I was one meal away from 350lbs...most recently, Jan. 1st, 2016, I was 320lbs. With my wedding less than 6 months away to my beautiful, physically fit, personal trainer fiancé, I wanted to get a grip on my health. So for two months I did Weight Watchers, a great system but it just got stale for me, so after losing 20lbs over two months, the third month I put back on 9lbs. Sitting at 309 pounds, with a wedding shirt I bought on January 1st, 2 sizes too small, for incentive to lose weight…I was struggling. I’m not a quitter, but with the wedding less than 3 months away, fitting into my wedding shirt was looking bleak.

 

I finally did a smart thing, I asked my fiancé for help. She suggested the Level-X Challenge she was having some of her clients sign up for. Well, to make a long story short, I jumped on board with her guidance. I’ve learned not only the value of ‘perimeter’ shopping but how to do it and have enjoyable meals. The best video I watched on your site was how to handle the Bakery section of the grocery store where the host just turned and ran out of it!! I think of it every time I go and it helps me move along.  I’ve played college level sports, been in (and out) of many gyms and with many weight loss attempts in my life I still couldn’t grasp the full concept of healthy eating and physical activity. The Level-X Challenge has taught me a healthy balance of proper nutrition and physical activity that I actually can handle in this older, broken down body. The best part of it was I did it right at home, no clubs, gyms or partners telling me to do ‘1 more rep’. My pain level hovered in the 6-7 range before the challenge. Now, with the elimination of most dairy, sugar, and processed foods, my pain level has halved and my energy has doubled.

 

It feels good to be able to tie my shoes and not have to come up for air. I like being the ‘Big Guy’ I just needed not to be the ‘Big Fat Guy’. Learning to make shopping lists and planning weekly menus is the key to my success, based on your principles of eating of course. Learning that I can still move, modifications of what I used to be able to do is okay and not requiring hours and hours in the gym is life changing for me. The help of my fiancé on the food preparation and shopping has been immeasurable and having the support to talk with her about the workouts was key. The nutritional information on the site was enlightening and your encouragement throughout was a big help. 


With 4 days left until the Challenge ends and when I weigh myself again, I can comfortably fit in my wedding shirt and I need a belt for my pants!!! Thanks, Challenge Team, for a thoughtful, insightful and reasonable challenge that is made for not only the ‘fit’ but those of us that needed to be ‘fit’ again.

Struggles – I think one of the biggest things I learned is that it’s okay to have a bad meal but not a bad day! There were a couple of times when I really wanted to eat something bad and couldn’t fight through it. When I did eat something bad, it made me strong enough to say no the next time the opportunity presented itself and not be completely defeated by the mistake. Going on to eat something healthy the next day made me realize I could keep going even though I made a mistake. Keep STRONG! You can do it! Nicole Eddy
